Editorial Reviews


Through his thorough account of the shipping industry's rise and fall and of the challenges admiralty jurisdiction posed to ideas about federalism, Professor Snell shows how commerce influenced the development of our unique governmental structure. --Harvard Law Review

For those with an interest in the development in American courts of a distinct jurisdiction in cases sufficiently related to waterborne transport, this book should fit neatly between that of Prichard and Yale on the one hand and Robertson on the other. It is more comprehensive in research and perspective, synthetic in process, and thematic in design than the former. It offers more evidence than the latter and it addresses controversies that have ripened since 1970. --Journal of Maritime Law and Commerce

I don't know Stephen Snell, but I wish I did. The depth of research on issues which are both arcane and legally important is astounding. It must have taken years of in depth research.
